Roasted Asparagus with Garlic-Lemon Sauce

Roasted asparagus is delicious drizzled with a sauce inspired by Caesar salad dressing. Low-fat mayonnaise makes the sauce creamy without a lot of extra calories or fat. Dress up the dish with chopped hard-boiled eggs or leave them out if you’re in a hurry.


•    2 bunches asparagus, (about 2 pounds), trimmed

•    2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

•    1/8 teaspoon salt

•    2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise

•    2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

•    2 tablespoons water

•    2 anchovy fillets, minced

•    1 small clove garlic, minced

•    1 tablespoon lemon juice

•    2 chopped hard-boiled eggs, (optional; see Tip)


1.    Preheat oven to 425°F.

2.    Toss asparagus with oil and salt in a large bowl. Spread on a baking sheet and roast, stirring once halfway through, until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

3.    Combine mayonnaise, Parmesan, water, anchovies, garlic and lemon juice in a small bowl. To serve, drizzle the asparagus with the sauce and top with hard-boiled egg (if using).
